i left the oven on too long and now there are just strange black shapes


i wrote a small book of poems this evening and submitted it to Zachary German's 'the name of this band is the talking heads'.

the poems are all 3 lines long.

there are 24 of them.

the book is called 'i left the oven on too long and now there are just strange black shapes'.

if it gets rejected -- which it probably will -- i'm going to make copies and post them to people, like i did with 'Paul Simon'.

(i just had an idea of a way of printing it 'in miniature'.)

this is funny.

monday evening i also wrote a book of poems and submitted it to 'the name of this band is the talking heads'. ha.

mine only has 14 poems but they are all maybe 6-10 lines or so.

the book is called 'when people talk to me i want to close my eyes'.

if it gets rejected, which it probably will, i might make copies and send them out for free like with 'we are in exile here'.

we are 'in the same business' i think.

i am pleased.
